Photography 101

I post this picture not to brag on my child.
(Altbough she is cute and this picture was taken because of the fact that she was wearing a dress and insisted on wearing the furry boots!)
I post this to brag on my friend Kim, who is one of the most excellent non professional photographers I know. Kim has a great eye for pictures. Her pictures always come out looking professional. I love the angles she chooses and the faces she waits for. So many of the pictures she takes are unique and in angles and expressions that I know I would never think of choosing.
I have two pictures hanging in my living room that Kim took of my kids when they were 1 & 3. They are beautiful and look like I paid a lot of money for them, when in fact, Kim has taken many cute pictures of my kids over the years and never charged me a dime.
I have heard Kim comment that other people are really great photographers and take the best pictures...but I would like to testify that I think that Kim Hill, hands down, rivals any professional out there.
So thanks Kim for giving of yourself in this way to your friends. I know that I am not the only one to benefit from your gift!

Okay Kim, have your camera ready at the Christmas Bazaar. Maybe you can do magic with this ol' woman! And then she can have it air brushed to have a few pounds removed.

I LOVE Lana Lou's furry boots! Now that child knows how to acccessorize.

Very true we can be at the same thing take the same picture and my looks "snap shot" and Kim's looks like a complete pro.

WOW! Thanks for the commercial Missy. It brought tears to my eyes. Photography is one of those things that I think I do okay, until I see someone else's work! Thanks for the boost of confidence!
Oh, and Rachel e-mail me and we'll arrange a date when I get back from Florida. My e-mail address is on my blog.
